Tanya Roberts – Bio, Net Worth, Childhood, Family And Celebrity Facts

Tanya Roberts gained a trendy fan following due to her portrayal of seductive characters in erotic movies from the 70s up till the 90s. She also gained popularity as the femme fatale of Hollywood after her successful portrayal of a Bond girl in one of James Bond movies titled A View to Kill which was released in 1985. Her voluptuous figure, as well as her well-toned legs, were well noticed by the discerning eyes of the camera and consequently, her acting prowess was never her strong suit even in her high budget movies as Tanya’s looks stole the attention that was supposed to be for her talent.

The lisp, breathless-voiced artist did not relent one bit in her efforts to prove herself to the public and fans. As a result of hard work and dedication, coupled with substantial roles in movies such as Sheena: Queen of the Jungle and The Beastmaster, she was able to establish herself not only as a beautiful woman but one capable of shouldering an entire movie. Even at this stage in her career, her acting prowess got a lot of criticism while Hollywood continued to admire her looks much more than her talent and continued to feature her solely in erotic thrillers.
